Kit Laughlin is one of the world’s authorities on the subject of stretching.
Kit studied oriental traditional Japanese medicine during a four-year stay in Japan and was the personal Shiatsu practitioner for the Japanese Ambassador in Australia. He was also asked to treat a Japanese Prime Minister during a visit to Australia in 1988.
Formerly he had been a middle distance runner and weight lifter, becoming a student of exercise forms: he attended dance and gymnastics classes; he studied anatomy and physiology, and studied Yoga and Pilates.
He was awarded a Master of Letters by the Science Faculty of the Australian National University in Canberra (1992) and was granted an Australian Postgraduate Research Award (1993-96) for Ph.D. research, where back pain was the main case study.
